Register as a New Patient
We always welcome new patients who live within our Practice area. Please see our boundary map below to check if you are eligible.
Please note: You can still register with our surgery if you are out of our practice boundary, however because of the distance to your home we may not be able to offer home visits. Registering with a practice further away from home may also affect decisions about referrals for hospital tests and treatments, or access to community health services. NHS England will provide a service to patients who register away from their home but who may require emergency home visits. For more information please visit Registering with a GP surgery outside the area you live - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
We do not require ID from patients to register them at the surgery.
You will need to complete some paperwork to register with the practice which you can do online via the links below
You can also complete your registration by filling in some forms by collecting them from the surgery, you will also need to complete a new patient questionnaire if you complete a paper form so that we have all the required information.
As a patient, you may express a preference of practitioner to receive services. We will always endeavour to comply with any reasonable preference but if we are unable to do so, we will explain why this is not possible.
The practice does not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, social class, age, religion, sexual orientation or appearance. Neither do we discriminate with regard to disability or medical condition.
As an adult patient you can attend for a routine health check on registering if you choose, with the Practice Nurse will check family history, blood pressure, weight and any health concerns. This information will help your new doctor until your records arrive from your previous doctor's surgery which can sometimes take a few weeks to arrive.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
